Rolling Stone: Immigration Overhaul to Raise American Wages Is ‘Self-Destructive’
A President Trump-endorsed proposal to scale back legal immigration levels is a “self-destructive policy,” according to aRolling Stone writer.
In a write-up for the famed music magazine, Joshua Holland claims Sens. Tom Cotton (R-AR) and David Perdue’s (R-GA) RAISE Act, which would cut legal immigration levels in half to raise U.S. workers’ wages, has racist motives:
Trump has embraced a dumb, self-destructive policy that would likely cause a serious hit to the economy if enacted, but there’s one upside to his regime’s unorthodox attacks on legal immigration: We should thank this crew for making it clear that animosity toward immigrants is, and always has been, grounded in petty cultural resentments and largely unfounded fears of economic competition, rather than in some abstract reverence for the rule of law.
